I previously posted some comments about this to bug 122191.

The question to ask here is what information a person using this tools needs to have immediately available. We should provide it, but at the same time it's critically important to keep the view uncluttered, keeping the tool immediately useful without any training.

I think that there are two aspects:

- When there are failing tests, it's very useful to know whether a fix has already been committed. So, there should be a quick way to learn about all commits made after the latest test run (more precisely, a run with the highest revision number). And that's not even limited to commits the buildbot already knows about.

A popover with appropriately shortened ChangeLogs will hopefully work for this purpose.

- When bots are not feeling well, and not processing builds/tests quickly, bot watchers should know about that too. Perhaps there could be an indication of how long the latest run is taking, which could even turn red if that's way more than previous runs. Or maybe it should turn red when there is a backlog of revisions to build/test, but the bot is idle.

Buildbot's ideas about pending runs are not particularly relevant for either aspect.
